Defined DATA disk and directory

Postby LJHXampp » 18. December 2016 20:43

Hi All,

How do I swing the DATA folder for XAMPP content [MySQL etc] across to a different disk with more space. On the standalone MySQL install this is acheived by editing the my.ini file in the MySQL Server Directory but not sure about the XAMPP installation . The database content will be < 10 Gb.

Basically this will aslo enable me to secure a regular backup along with other data I have on my workstation.

Thanks,

lJ

Hi,

There is no single xampp configuration file. Each component has it's own one and all of them need to be changed.
The good news is that you can use the setup_xampp.bat script for that. Simply move your entire xampp folder to the new location and execute the setup_xampp.bat script which should adjust all of the needed paths in the configuration files.

best wishes,
Altrea
